Peak to Creek 2016: lowered start but the race stayed real

On Sunday February 28, 2016 the event Peak to Creek took place in Bormio (Lombardia, Italy). The annual alpine ski race was a great success despite the severe snow alert that would have discouraged the most courageous mountain man. The event gave, once again, evidence of being a superb day of sport and a great moment of sharing.

The event registered a good attendance: over 400 people joined the edition 2016 which stayed a real race in spite of the lowered start taken down to 2,500 meters on the S. Ambrogio slope. The official race course was supposed to start from Cima Bianca at 3,000 m but due to the low visibility and the snow alert the Organizing Committee had to modify the start level. It was a forced decision to safeguard the safety of the skiers but, in the end, the race kept its charm and thrilling spirit. The exclusive format of Peak to Creek kept its original features: course prepared like a downhill and paired-up start.
